caller. >> caller: it's deplorable that republicans always find their religion when measures are needed that doesn't affect areas of their concern. i didn't see anybody asking for offsets when, and the federal debt and deficit was blooming with george bush, and nobody wanted offsets to help those in the disaster relief all the way up until this president got in office. he came in with a federal debt and deficit already ballooned, but everybody found religion on spending after george bush hut the wars on the credit card and the medicare part d on the credit card. it was under already, and now they found religion and cut all programs that affect people that didn't cause the downturn or didn't cause the ballooning of the debt so they find religion when it doesn't affect them. >> guest: the club for growth had a consistent position on this. we are akooked of being uncaring when it comes time to disaster relief, and it's an up fair accusation because we want people to get help that they need, but we think it ought to be paid for and not to put the burden or spread the burden larger. it shoul
it's not -- football has nothing to do with it, it's a disgrace. >> let me ask you, in my religion, it's good to suffer some penance in admission of guilt, and then you move on. but when you try to cover something up and you don't confess or accept punishment for it, it stays with you. why doesn't penn state want to get this over with, take their punishment and penalty and get in the huddle and figure out the future? why do they want to go back at this thing when everybody knows they were guilty? >> well, i think penn state probably does want to continue on and get this behind them. and i think it needs to be pointed out this is governor corbett acting independent of penn state. even though he has sat on the board of trustees. listen, chris. i share the skepticism of buzz s bying bissinger about the acts. he has taken a thumping in the polls personally. this litigation might be popular with litigations. one of the reason he's taken such a hurt is people look at him and wonder why as attorney general it took so long for him to move on sandusky. why when he had one credible reporter

's major religions right now including the evangelical churches to say this is a moral and religious issue, okay. from our worldview, from our standpoint, this is crucial both because we were commanded by god in genesis to till and tend the garden, to care for his creation which when he created he kept telling us, "it is good." okay, it is our responsibility they would say to take care of his creation, and that the kinds of things that we are currently doing to the planet are essentially violating that promise. but moreover, we're also seeing the theme of social justice, that we've been commanded, they would say, to take care of the least of these. the poor, the sick, the powerless both in our own country and around the world. and many churches, in fact, have invested enormous resources, i mean, sending their young people abroad to do great works to try to help people who desperately need that help. their argument would be how can we in good conscience ignore a problem that's just going to push millions of more people around the world into those exact same kinds of circumstances we're tryi
to join weekly yoga and meditation classes. fortunately, the military seems intent on driving religion out and replacing it with wacky substitutes. atheists warship centers and now meditation classes. but none of them are as effective or as scruff as personal relationship with god. unfortunately though, it is mind over what matters and that's faith. >> yoga helps you stay limber. >> they're not forcing marines to participate in yoga classes. >> stephanie: one sergeant said i felt more relaxed i noticed i wasn't tense all the time. >> it is helping to shut your brain down for a little bit so you can relax. >> focus and be in the moment which you need to be in combat. >> stephanie: kundalini yoga sounds dirty. >> what is that? >> stephanie: it is a kind of yoga. >> i know nothing about yoga. >> stephanie: downward dog sounds gay. >> i don't know what that is either. >> stephanie: okay. it is a yoga pose. >> like i said, i know nothing about yoga. i'm not terribly bendy. >> stephanie: okay. rush limbaugh. >> there is a movement on to normalize pedophilia. i guarantee you your reaction to that
to bear arms in this country and believe it is as core to them as freedom of speech or freedom of religion. i think the laws that are on the books now would not have kept someone like my father from having a gun. we have real issues on mental health that have to be addressed. we are not seeing money put into programs on the books. but i don't understand why anybody needs an assault weapon in this country. i hope that everybody will come to a table. otherwise people are going to go to their corners and fight not seeing what we need to see get done. >> when you see a movement to restrict gun ownership rights, the inevitable outcome is gun sales, magazine sales, ammo sales guthrough the roof. it is the polar opposite intention of what people on debbie's side. argument want to see. >> we saw this before president obam was elected, when hadt looked like he was going to be elected in 2008 and the time period between the inauguration, you see the big jump in gun sales. there has been some degree of... too much concern on the part of gun owners and people said, the president's going to take away a
. connell: think about this and take as you said take religion out of it for a moment because it brings up kind of the wider discussion of how do we use technology to, you know, make us more efficient or even make us safer. we're having all these discussions in schools about after the shooting in connecticut maybe something like this or more technology would be used. but you can't force people to do it, you're saying. >> let me try and crystallize the argument for you, one school of thought is you need to balance safety with freedom. and then freedom will include privacy. another school of thought is safety and privacy are not equal. privacy is the greater good. privacy is a natural right. i can keep myself safe, but i need the government to stay away from me to keep my privacy. there's no balance between them. it's a bias in favor of privacy. the burden should be on the government to prove why this is necessary, not on the defendant, the student, to prove why this is harmful. dagen: but the momentum is toward greater security. >> yes, the government either based on sound reasoning and log

exercise of religion, applies to these companies that have principles that the owners of these companies have religious convictions and to force or compel someone to violate their conscience is exactly what the free exercise clause of the constitution of the united states was designed to prevent. and this is turned that upside down. i think the obama administration just needs to go back and rewrite their exemptions here. and that would solve this problem. this could be handled administratively. so far the obama administration, president obama's administration has no desire to do that. that's why we're in court. bill: i understand you're looking for delay on this, but meantime us does the company pay the fine? >> they don't have to until the fine is assessed. i used to work with treasury. the question will be when will the actual fine be assessed against the company. that's where i think the department of justice and the department of labor should hold back and wait until the cases are adjudicated. bill: which reached -- >> most of the cases go in our favor, i understand the point you're
, in mythical narrative's, whether it is creationism, or the fact that muslims are a satanic religion. you cannot rationally argue with people who think the earth was created 6000 years ago and adam-and-eve used to ride on the backs of dinosaurs. the only thing you can do is reintegrate them into the economy. that is what frightens me. when you fall to that level of desperation, and this is exactly what tore apart yugoslavia with these ethnic, nationalist identities. there becomes an inability to communicate. a year ago we had several hundred white guys dressed in confederate uniforms margin to montgomery. half of that city is black. to carry out a re-enactment of the inauguration of jefferson davis. it cannot carry out a dialogue. that is what frightens me. we have powerful movements that celebrate the gun culture, the language of violence, that demonize the marginal and the week, whether it is african- americans, homosexuals, women, liberals. i see that breakdown occurring because of the economic disintegration, and having lived through it in places like yugoslavia, the rational argument
and his three brothers came to the united states. my grandfather, more than any religion, my grandfather would recite the declaration of independence of the preamble of the gettysburg address. we have injustice and the rule of law. and you know, i believe what ronald reagan said. our values are our greatest strength in the world. and i do believe what was said, it matters when you are tested and you have to do it. thank you. >> we would like to open it up for questions. >> could you talk about the impact it will have? >> this is becoming a new year's eve tradition. if anyone is being transferred out of guantÁnamo, they have to be given a certification and the reasons for the transfer out have to be noted. on new year's eve, it becomes which will draw first. the ball in times square or obama? there is another key word i would use to describe what has been done. all the right things have been said about the rule of law and principles and values. but he has failed to live up to his words. but a lot of the critics are the ones that say that president bush and anyone who decides to interfere
or different traits, a different religion or want to protect statices house on courts, i believe few have become the watch for the notion that this intersection of the theory basically says that somebody can be different who has multiple traits as opposed to just one of them and the law should take that into account. do you have an opinion on that? >> i suppose we are talking about mixed motives? >> it's sort of like that, but just opposed to an african-american male how they might have a different experience because of the streets together. >> but if the differential experience is reflected in the paycheck, and the objective qualifications and performance are the same, then of course it can't be a double recovery but the plant should recover. i think that is part of the civil-rights restoration act of 91. congress had the principle that the mixed motives causation is subject to atcausation is subject to attack under the law of title seven. >> could you tell us a little bit about what led you to make the decision to go to law school and corresponding do you have any advice for the student
liberalism from liberals and religion from the religious. extremist-dominated debate where most people who are involved, who own guns, who might use them for sporting purposes aren't in favor of these assault weapons. they're not -- these things are made, these high-capacity magazines, these weapons, are made to simulate a kind of military-style engagement. here's my suggestion. anyone who wants to do that should volunteer to go join the military. >> ask wes moore about that. >> yeah. and go deal with that. so it's time for moderate people -- i own guns. it's time for people like me who own guns, who think that -- but think that the extremists have gone too far to actually take a stand on it. the second point -- and chris christie was making this point yesterday -- is it's not just about guns. and this goes to your question. it's about violence. and it's about the video games. and it's about culture. and that's not a bill. that's not a piece of legislation. it's a broad hour-to-hour household-to-household battle that requires parents, teachers, everyone to be engaged. and i think being eng

% of the religion sterd voters in pennsylvania were not going to have the required form of voter i.d. on election day, and would have to vote provisionally. we found out, common law of court issued its ruling on october 2nd which was, what, five weeks before the election. coincidentally it was the first day we scheduled our photo voter i.d. training for election officials. so we went through with the process. a little difficult to train your poll workers for something that may be in effect six months from now. may be in effect a year from now. but the way the law stand right now it will probably be in effect for this coming primary. we don't know that yet. we trained about 4200 election officers out of the relatively, about 5000 that are required to attend training in pennsylvania. and, it was a success because we were able to reinforce the provisions for provisional ballot voting because as we have heard before, just relatively complicated process filling out all the paperwork. the last thing you don't want to happen is for a voter's vote not to count because an election official didn't sign off
